Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme
created and hosted by lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish.
As it’s the case with all of you, there are A MILLION books out there that I want to buy for myself. There is one problem with that though – money, or rather the lack of it. So if someone gave me a fully loaded gift card I think I would go crazy
(or rather I know I would) and buy as many books as possible (which I’m sure everyone reading this would do). So these are just some of the ones I would buy right now! 🙂
10. Stephen King books:
I don’t know if you are aware but Stephen King is one of my all time favourite authors. So far I have read 13 books by him (or so goodreads tells me). It’s been waaaay too long since I read something by him and I don’t have any unread books that he has written. The ones I want to buy the most are:
Of course there are more (A LOT more) books by him that I want to read, but these three are just the ones I’m in the mood for in this moment.
9. Neil Gaiman books:
I have LOVED everything that I have read by Neil Gaiman so far. But I haven’t read nearly as many books as I want to by him (though I want to read everything that he has written, so that’s not saying much). The three books I’m most interested in right now are:
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman
- Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman
- The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman, Chris Riddell (illustrator)
I just now realized that all three of these are very different from each other! I hadn’t noticed that when I was choosing the ones I wanted to put on this list.
8. Rick Riordan books:
I think this is turning into ‘What books by authors I like I want to buy’…Anyway! I loved Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus, ever since I finished those books I wanted to read more books by him.
- The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
- Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan, John Rocco (illustrator)
- The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan
I really want all of these books in hardcover, sooo it’s going to be a while before I actually end up buying them. Though I have literary just ordered The Kane Chronicles and I can’t wait for those three books to arrive!
7. The Seven Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima
I have heard nothing but amazing things about this whole series. A friend of mine just recently read the first two books and she said that I would absolutely love these books (and I do trust her opinion).
6. The Riyria Revelations Series by Michael J. Sullivan
There really isn’t much to say about these books aside from: I HAVE TO READ THEM! As you know, fantasy is my favourite genre and these books sound like something I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE. They just seem to have everything that I love in a fantasy. As you can tell, I’m very exited to get them.
5. The Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray
As you can see, these books are simply stunning and I really want to have them! I have heard mixed things about them, so I’m not sure if I’ll actually enjoy them. Whenever I see them in the bookstore I’m tempted to buy them, somehow I have resisted
(don’t ask me how, I don’t even know myself).
4. The Wrath and the Dawn Duology by Renee Ahdieh
I have heard nothing but amazing things about these two books. Everyone just seems to love them. Ever since the first one came out I have wanted to get it! The problem there? I wanted to get the hardcover, but sadly didn’t have the money at the time. And then I somehow always forget to buy these books when I actually do have the money. XD
3. Agatha Christie books:
I love reading the mysteries that Agatha Christie writes. So far I have really enjoyed everything that I have read by her, and especially her Hercule Poirot books.
- The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie
- Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie
- Poirot Investigates by Agatha Christie
- The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie
All four of these books are Hercule Poirot mysteries and they are all among the first ones published about him. Basically I would love to collect and read all of them (the whole series, not just these four). We shall see if that is going to ever happen.
2. Terry Pratchett books:
I love the world that Terry Pratchett has created in his Discworld books. I also love his writing style and I want to read all of his books.
These three are just the ones I want to read the most.
While writing this list I have just realized how many books I actually want to read…There is seriously A TON. And I will stop thinking about it now, as it’s going to make me anxious. It’s also made me realize that I definitely need to join a library, as there is no way I’ll have the money to buy all these books.
1. The Harry Potter Slytherin Box Set by J. K. Rowling
Is anyone really surprised that this is on my list? I think not.
All of the house themed box sets are simply beautiful. But since I’m a Slytherin
(and I have always been one) I definitely want to get the Slytherin one. And you know how much I love Harry Potter and how much it means to me, so I can’t own too many editions of these books!
So this is everything! (Not really, there are literary a thousand books that I want to buy.) I had sooo much fun looking through my TBR list on goodreads and choosing the books for this list.
Do you have any of these books on your wishlist? Have you read any of them and did you enjoy them? Do let me know! 🙂
Thank you for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day.
